I wrote a letter the other day explaining how everything happens for a reason…even if you don’t immediately understand why.
In similar fashion, the boys of The Lonely Biscuits recorded and filmed a music video this summer in the Jersey Shore called “Everybody”. The song weaves through lyrics about letting go of the things that are out of our control, and focusing on the positive to move forward; They initially chose not to release it citing there was no true emotional connection to the lyrics.
Then Sandy hit.
The Shore and many parts of the east coast were devastated, and the process of rebuilding and moving forward is in full effect. The guys decided to release the track in honor of all of us who were affected, with 100% of proceeds going towards rebuilding these communities.

“We wrote this song in the summer of 2012 in New Jersey. The song is about moving on and looking up when we cannot control the situations that we are going through. We have had a surreal experience with this song and video, considering this town is now in shambles. We were never going to release this song because we could not connect to it and did not realize the meaning in the lyrics that we had written at the time. However, after Hurricane Sandy hit, we noticed that there is something much deeper within this song that was meant to spread positivity and uplift everyone’s spirits during this time of tragedy. There has been some serious fate that has taken place while making this song and video and deciding not to release it, and we feel that it was made solely to help the victims of the storm. There is more than just our music in this song, there is love, hope, and a meaning that we did not control and cannot describe. All proceeds will be going towards helping rebuild the communities affected. Peace and Love Biscuits.”
